Toronto R&B artist, Taahira Aquiyla Duff, known to her fans simply as Aqyila, is starting 2024 off strong. With the release of the highly-anticipated single, “Bloom,” Aqyila looks to build on the success of her 2023 debut EP, For The Better. In 2021, her first single, “Vibe for Me (Bob for Me),” racked up over 10 million streams worldwide and landed her first JUNO Award nomination for ‘Contemporary R&B Recording of the Year.’ Since then, Aqyila has only seen more growth and success. She was tapped as an ambassador for TikTok’s #RnBmonth in November 2022 and has landed opening spots for other talented artists like Kimbra and Cat Burns. The rising star’s EP also featured singles “Pressure,” and “OH,” both songs showcasing her maturing vocals and songwriting skills. “Hello,” another song on the EP deeply resonated with her audience on TikTok and has become another viral fan favourite.
